Re: Small brass screws

Too small and they fall through the mount holes. Too long they stick out of the back of the lens board. Just file them down on the back once you've screwed them in.

How many do you need, just pm me and I'll pop some in an envelope for ya.

Re: Small brass screws

This is after buying a load of brass micro screws from the US.

Re: 10-minute photos

At one point there was talk of a tax on these plates to raise income for the UK coffers.

I was reading somewhere that in the UK several hundered million of these plates were shot annually w...
